> DESCRIPTION

Susanne Vielmetter Los Angeles Projects is pleased to announce the gallery’s sixth solo exhibition of new work by Patrick Wilson. Wilson is known for creating finely calibrated, luminous abstract paintings composed of lines and quadrilaterals. He uses a simple and straightforward medium, paint on canvas, to build a richly layered composition of complex spatial dynamics.

Despite the apparent precision of Wilson’s method, he produces paintings by intuitively exploring the relationships between color and shape. Nowhere is this playful attitude more obvious than in Wilson’s titles, which often connect his paintings to other, more quotidian, creative and sensual experiences like cooking and dining. This aspect of the work provides insight into Wilson’s personal philosophy that looking at and making paintings is a pursuit of pleasure and beauty, to be approached at a leisurely pace, without hermeneutic distraction.

Wilson describes this new body of work as “organic,” because the paintings appear to be in a constant state of slow motion or growth. Composed of solid geometries, Wilson’s new paintings are destabilized as they undulate with a vibrancy that contradicts their architectural references.

Patrick Wilson received an MFA from Claremont GraduateSchool. Recent exhibitions include “Patrick Wilson: Pull,” at the University Art Museum, California State University, Long Beach; the 2010 California Biennial at the Orange County Museum of Art, Newport Beach; “Electric Mud” at the Blaffer Gallery, University of Houston, TX; “Current Abstraction in Southern California,” Cypress College Art Gallery, Cypress; “Keeping it Straight: Right Angles and Hard Edges in Contemporary Southern California Art,” Riverside Art Museum, Riverside, CA; “Claremont Connections: Selections from the Permanent Collection,” Long Beach Museum of Art, Long Beach; and “Gyroscope,” Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington DC. His work is included in the collections of the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Smithsonian Institution, Washington D.C, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Orange County Museum of Art, the San Jose Museum of Art, the Columbus Museum of Art and the Long Beach Museum of Art.

Susanne Vielmetter Los Angeles Projects is located at 6006 Washington Blvd in Culver City, 1 block west of La Cienega at Sentney Avenue. Gallery Hours are Tuesday through Saturday from 10 am - 6 pm and by appointment.
